First year that I have been back local in the past 3. Made sure I set aside a day to spend at RR enjoying this amazing beer. Had it in 2010 in CO, and in 2008 at RR.
A: Pale with a faint tint of Orange. Awesome clarity. Awesome lacing, I would post a picture if I could.
S: Fruity, tart, Citrus, Hops, Hops, Hops. Not like the 11% ABV that this beer is. Didn't last long smelling it before I took the first sip.
T: Everything it smelled like except for the Hops, Hops and more Hops. Just as drinkable as I remembered. No harsh after taste like some big IPAs. Smooth, fruity, hoppy and balanced!
M: Magic! How do they fit 11% in there without it tasting or feeling anything like syrup? Mouthfeel is like any great IPA, Smooth light and Crisp!
O: This beer is #1 for a reason!
Serving type: on-tap

Had in a bottle at my house.. Hardee har har.. I stood in line for 6 hours on Monday Feb 17th.. Had to save my notes for this to be the 100th beer.
A: perfect hazy orange color that only left a little bit of head by the time my glasses got to me
S: smells of citrus and a small amount of pine.. I would argue that this is the exact smell that any "IPA" should shoot for
T: same as the smell.. Citrus and a little pine.. Very smooth and well balanced
M: I would say medium.. Ideal mouthfeel for IPA
O: obviously 1 of the highest rated IPA's and after getting to try it very well deserved.. Was lucky enough to have a non-drinking buddy that lives in CA take me and get 6 instead of the mandated 3.. Also lucky that he was cool enough to run to another bar and grab us burgers while we were in line or I would have been in trouble.. Big shout out to the coolest guy I know.. Thanks again Z!! Probably won't do it again cuz the wait was unrealistic but if you haven't had it it is worth doing once.. Very well done Russian River
